Not in a touristy area, this is a good location for folks who want to stay in "East Berlin" and still have good access to the train for sightseeing.
The person who showed me the room was friendly, but then I never saw anyone again. This is fine if you're not looking for a lot of attention, but would be an issue if you want to stay in a place that has front desk staff - there's no front desk here.
My room was really small, as was the bathroom - but both were tidy and everything well-maintained. My room was on the "inside" of the building, looking out onto a courtyard. Avoid a street-side room, especially on the first floor, which didn't look like it got a whole lot of privacy.
There are several food options nearby and a great little shop a few yards away that had everything I needed (water, snacks). I felt totally safe walking around alone at night and the proximity to the train is great. The wireless internet was excellent.
All-in-all I can recommend this as an option over staying at a hostel. But it's not really a "hotel" - it's really like staying in an apartment building. It worked for me and I'd have no problem staying again.
